##### N. L. Prater's Petrol Refinery Data

The yield of a petroleum refining process with four covariates. The crude oil appears to come from only 10 distinct samples.

These data were originally used by Prater (1956) to build an estimation equation for the yield of the refining process of crude oil to gasoline.
